Day 20You were designed for God by God. You are perfect just as you are. Tell ego to go take a hike. You need to know why he has held out so long for you to see him. Your true, everlasting soul mate you so longed for. He is with you loving you every day before you were born. Don't you realize how He adores and cares for you? Don't you know He wants you to feel his love? Ask and you shall receive. I love you. Why is this so hard for you when all you want you have? God loves you so much. I know you love Him too, so rejoice and be happy.True love is yours forever into eternity with the one man your only true love, God the Father in Heaven, blessed be thy name. May all the angels sing your praise for you and the most high, the almighty God, the Father, who created the Heaven and Earth. May love surround you and fill your heart with bliss, euphoria, exhilaration, joy. God is so great. He is always with you. He hears all your prayers. He answers all your prayers. God's delays are not God's denials. Sweet child, go easy on yourself. Mom is singing and dancing. She is in the Graceland of Heaven and Elvis has just begun to live.Day 21Write, write, pick up your pen and write. Be open, listen. God loves you. He's here for you. Amen. You have so much to be thankful for. You are a child of God who has loved the Lord since you were born. Before you were home with God and you will return there when it's time. When the lessons are learned your purpose for being here is for God's purpose. You may think you have control, but you do not. So you can continue in your life thinking you have a plan, but God has the only plan for you and for everyone. He wants you to be happy, but his plan is right on track. No deterring of his path. I know this is hard for you to truly let go, and let God. What do you do? You keep listening, you keep writing, you keep reading, keep praying, and keep communicating. Don't give up. Never, never give up. Winston Churchill reminds you, ‘Don't stop having faith and believe God loves you always’. Amen.Day 22There will be a miracle today. I deserve it. Ego, go away. Love, peace, kindness, laughter, all miracles. There has been miracles and will continue to be miracles. Allow yourself to be open for suggestion. I want you to know that you are already loved. You are a miracle to be here. God is with you and loves you so much. You are his miracle. Make Him proud. Serve Him, love Him, pray to Him, and write to Him.Give all your worries to Him. He can handle them all. My dear, you are not alone. You have love all around you. It will be in your heart and soul to be loved and give love. I know you are anxious and lonely. You are not alone. I want you to say, ‘I'm a miracle’, every day to yourself. You are. God loves you and protects you; He comforts you and watches over you. He is with you now and always, just as far as your breath, as close as your heartbeat and every fiber of your being, I am. Love, joy, fun, miracles occur always.Day 23 You're still feeling you are a body in this world. You are not. You are a soul in a body. You are experiencing this earthly experience and do not like it. Why should you? You are a soul with a body and your spiritual needs are not met by the body. Being physical through touch is not love. It is proof you are in this body and so is everyone else. You so desire love and higher power in soul in the spirit in light. I know it's hard to understand, my child. You will one day get to experience earthly love and spiritual love. Spiritual love is the greatest and deepest. I promise you that it will last forever, and you already know, you know how much God loves you and forgives you. You think you are wrong, but really you are confused. Confused by this love on Earth. Practice controlling your will. It is given to you for a reason and you must exercise it. You must believe in yourself as a miracle, a child of God. What would Jesus do? Why don't you remind yourself every day you are a miracle and what would Jesus do? And you are lonely and confused. Amen.
